Aloha Friday - Cha Ching


It's Aloha Friday again over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

It's been a super long time since I've blogged one of these.


What is one of your money saving secrets?

It's not really a secret, but I recently started clipping coupons. I save anywhere from $50-$70 dollars per grocery trip. That is super exciting to me. It's actually pretty good considering the commissary doesn't double or triple coupons. Imagine how much I could save if they did? I have 5 boxes of Equal that I got for free!!! Hey! When you have a coupon for $2.50 off a box of Equal that costs $2.49 you just can't pass it up!!!! I also buy my kids' clothes a season ahead so I can buy most on sale and/or clearance. I will then turn around and sell it on eBay and use that money towards more new clothes. I'm such a spender but I make up for it by being thrifty.

Well, don't laugh, but ~ I never keep much cash in my wallet - it really keeps me from buying all those things I don't really need!

I try to buy stuff on sale, but that is about it. I'm really not very good at it either. I clip coupons, but never get around to using them (or forget them when I go out!).

Clearance aisles lol I use coupons..sometimes. I sign up for everything free online lol And probably the best tip is to stick to a list.. my husband always goes off with his own cart oh my word.. I can't believe all the things he brings back to my cart LOL

I have also gotten more into coupons lately. I love saving the money and matching them up with amazing sales.

I go to the discount grocery outlet 30 mins away every 3 weeks and load up, instead of shopping at the major supermarket down the street every week. I save approx. $300 a month.

buying stuff on sale and using coupons for those things! I get many things for almost free!

Ok, you must be visiting the commissary alone, right? I clip coupons and shop at the commissary, but usually end up saving about $8-10. Once, when my husband came to help with the 3 hooligans, I managed to save $22. How do you save so much?!
